Why is Arterial Plaque so Dangerous?

Why is arterial plaque so dangerous?

Arterial plaque is formed in the blood vessels when deposits of lipids, cholesterol, calcium, fibrin (clotting material in the blood) large inflammatory cells which are called macrophages are present. We use the word atherosclerosis to describe this rather large problem because these fatty deposits over time can clog up arteries.

The plaque build up doesn’t just form on the artery wall but also within the artery wall. Plaque may partially block up the arteries or it may totally block up the blood flow to a large or medium artery located in your heart, pelvis, brain, arm, leg or kidney.

Understanding arterial plaque

Another way of understanding about arterial plaque, think about the water pipes in your house, they clog up because of lime build up, grease, and sediment,guess what the water doesn’t flow because of the blockage. Similarly with your arteries, if there is a build-up of plaque this can have very serious consequences for your health because if the blood isn’t flowing normally it can cause a heart attack or stroke.​

If this happens, various common diseases will result, which include:

Coronary heart disease 

This is plaque build up within the arteries that lead to your heart.


Angina is caused by the reduction of blood flow in the arteries that supply the heart muscle

Carotid artery disease

​This is a build-up of plaque in the neck arteries that supply blood to the brain

Peripheral artery disease (PAD)

​Plaque builds up in arteries leading to the arms and legs causing a reduction in blood flow.

Chronic kidney disease
​Heart attack, Stroke or Gangrene

Heart disease

This is what can happen where there is plaque, a piece of plaque could break off, the blood stream will carry it until it lodges somewhere in the arterial system. The second thing that can happen is (thrombus) a blood clot will form on the surface of the plaque.

In these circumstances the blood flow will be blocked or cut off completely leading to a heart attack or stroke. If the blood flow to the legs is interrupted or blocked this may cause gangrene. (The tissue dies)

​Stable angina

​Is a medical condition which occurs when plaque build up worsens.

Arterial thrombosis

Arterial thrombosis happens if plaque suddenly ruptures and causes a blood clot to form which can lead to a blockage in the artery and can produce acute coronary syndrome.


​Happens when the plaque builds up weakens the arterial wall and causes a balloon effect to form an aneurysm, this does cause internal bleeding, and an example of this is called ruptured aortic aneurysm.

Stroke, peripheral artery disease

​These are other very common medical problems associated with atherosclerosis

Artery plaque

What are the symptoms of plaque build up?

​Signs and symptoms of arterial plaque build up include

1.Fatigue or weakness

2.Trouble sleeping

3.High blood pressure

4. Chest pain

5. Shortness of breath

Why is arterial plaque dangerous?

​Blocked or restricted blood flow to the arterial system increases the chances of a heart attack or stroke, as we age our chances of this happening increase dramatically, Cardiovascular disease is still the number one killer in the world today, so it is important to be aware of plaque in your arteries and what the dangers are.

What can you do to reverse arterial plaque?

​It is said that by changing the foods that we eat can have an impact in reducing hardening of the arteries, we still don’t know enough about if food can clean our arteries of plaque. Studies conducted on animals have shown that by decreasing lipoprotein or blood cholesterol levels the plaque build up regressed.

Dr Hans Niper, a German physicist had this to say about the role of Serrapeptase in reducing plaque build up.

“The Therapeutic Results are Excellent, Certainly Lifesaving” ​​archive_722507_1_a4bfea451360bdfb4b29ad1eafd3d757

By Dr. H A Nieper 

Dr. Hans Nieper says, “NEVER accept substitutes when it comes to your health.”

“I informed you some years ago that Serrapeptase is apparently active in the cleaning of coronary arteries from occluding layers.

Serrapeptase for arterial plaque removal

I have also found Serrapeptase to be an extraordinary substance for safety removing fibrous blockages from coronary arteries, particularly the carotid arteries found in the neck, which supply blood brain. Serrapeptase is a natural enzyme produced by serratia bacteria living in silkworms. Once the silkworm has completed its transformation into a moth, it uses this substance to “melt” a hole in its cocoon, so that it can escape.




The astonishing fact is that, unlike other biological enzymes, Serrapeptase affects only non-living tissue, like the silk cocoon. This is the reason the butterfly is not harmed. For our health purposes, Serrapeptase dissolves only dead tissues such as the old fibrous layers that clog the lining of our arteries and dangerously restrict the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain.

Because of this, Serrapeptase is extremely useful in keeping arterial deposits from building up again after angioplasty (a balloon technique used to clear an artery blockage) or coronary bypass surgery has been performed.

Doctor Hans Napier

Very often, surgeons are reluctant or unable to open partially closed carotid arteries using laser surgery. They fear that resulting debris could be pushed into smaller connecting arteries and result in a stroke and possibly death. In cases of severe arterial narrowing.

I have used Serrapeptase with excellent, even life-saving results. Many of my patients have shown significant improved blood flow through their previously constricted arteries, as confirmed by ultrasound examination. Unfortunately, orthodox cardiologists do not employ this important method in their practices.”

Dr H. A. Nieper

Head, Dept of Medicine

How does Serrapeptase clear arterial plaque?

​Dr Hans Nieper through his research found that Serrapeptase has the ability to protect and at the same time reverse atherosclerosis.

Serrapeptase does this by digesting cholesterol, calcium, fibrin (clotting agent), various fats, these are the main causes of plaque build up in the arteries.Dr Nieper also discovered that Serrapeptase does this without causing any harm to the tissues and lining within the wall of the arteries.

  1. Arterial plaque is really dangerous and I agree with all you’ve said about it in this article, it’s really interesting and good to know of what causes it and how it comes about. It’s very dangerous and its always accompanied by Various diseases and you’ve done well be listing them in this article. The symptoms of arterial plaque are not always visible as I’ll say because they can easily be mistaken to be another thing, thanks for making that clear enough and also for suggesting possible cures. Thanks

  2. An interesting article, thank you!  I had heard of serrapeptase before, but I always thought it was more effective for anti-inflammatory purposes (thus maybe pain) and helping people with chronic bronchitis breathe, because the blood clotting part of it has never been proven by scientific studies and only has people’s testimonials to back it up.  That said, it was given as a medication in Japan and Europe for inflammation for ages, so it’s an interesting idea.  Thanks for the article.

    • Hi Selenity,

      Thank you for commenting,Serrapeptase is so good for many conditions, for me personally I wouldn’t be without it because it has helped me a lot with hip bursitis pain and a swollen knee.


  3. Oh, this is very good. To learn about arterial plaque like this here. I didn’t know about it but I have seen some people with arteries issue and i wouldn’t have thought that they could have avoided the blocked arteries if they had been hygienic. This serves as a warning for me. I like the way you have explained this and explained the different sicknesses that can come with the problem and also how you have used the pipe as an example to explain the plaque. 

  4. I didn’t know it was so dangerous. I’ll take this post as a warning. Thanks for putting together this article and for the example of the water pipes in our house.

    I know it has been difficult for me to arrive to the conclusion that I really need changing the foods that I like and that I eat. But it’s a necessity.

  5. Hi, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. My mother is suffering from high cholesterol and that is why I worry for her. She has her medicines but I wanted to ask you can she use Serrapeptase to reduce the cholesterol as obviously her therapy doesn’t give any results?

  6. Thank you for this informative article. This is one of the most discussed topics today. Heart diseases are one of the number 1 reasons of sudden and premature deaths. Arterial plaque is caused by many factors, but the most common are obesity, bad nutrition, bad habits like smoking or alcohol or not enough physical activity.

    I always recommend visiting doctor at least once at 6 months if you are considered to be in the risky category. Prevention is always the best cure.

  7. Hi Fintan,

    I really enjoyed reading your article about the dangers of arterial plaque.

    I had not realised there was a reasonably easy solution to the problem. I am looking into buying some Serrapeptase. Although I have no symptoms of blocked arteries, it can’t do any harm. Thanks again for your very informative article, Regards, Andrew.

  8. This is really eye-opening for me how dangerous Arterial Plaque can be. I am fortunate that I don’t have any of the symptoms that you have listed and my doctor has given me a good bill of health. Often people my age (55) have high bp. It is nice to know that there are solutions out there. Do you think diet impacts arterial plaque?

    • Hi Wendy,

      That’s a great question,the wrong type of food can raise your bad cholesterol, that in turn will add to the plaque build up in the arteries, so yes food does contribute to hardening of the arteries.


  9. Oh well, this is very good. I do not know any one with arterial plaque but i am happy to know this. I guess there is no knowledge that is a waste. Having read this post, i can see that there are some times of problems that can escalate to become bigger issues with the system. Serrapeptase seems to be the saving grace with this problem. Nice post you have up here. I should share it.

  10. Wow, I didn’t know what a Arterial plague was. This article definitely taught me something new today.. Didn’t know how dangerous it was.. A really good read here.. Good job, you were very informative, detailed and how much this really matters to you.. Thank you for being detailed, people need to know about the disease.. Really like what you have here..Good work! Best of luck to you!

  11. Thank you for this informative and interesting post.

    I have concerns that my diet may be leading me down the path of less than pristine arteries.  That said, I’m not sure I have the willpower to correct this by diet alone.

    Now, I can honestly say I’m not too keen on trying something that melts stuff away on my insides (even if it’s only non-living tissue), LOL.  I’m sure it’s safe, I’m just not sure melt is a good way to market something…  Still, it’s definitely something to look into.

    Again, thank you for this.
